This ad itself is quite poor.
In the mid 1990's crime in the USA was spiraling out of control and this game was a testament to the fears people had over the decay of the urban environment. L.A. was destined to descend into apocalypse as drugs and poverty promised reign over a bleak future. "Police Quest: Open Season" was a voyeuristic foray into another world Sierra On-Line was at this point on point in creating. None of this is evident in this boring ad. Perhaps they needed to release something as production had already been greenlit.
According to the book "Freakonomics" the legalization of abortion in the 1970's meant that the crime rate in the 1990's plummeted.
